Cost in the US, $2.50, in Guatemala much less!

Like their neighbors throughout Central America, Guatemalans make hot cocoa out of bars of pressed cocoa (called "table chocolate." Dry and crumbly, these hot cocoa bars are nothing like the creamy bars of chocolate we snack on. The good news? You can find them in your…
